be a reference to the fact that during the nixon administration in reality the whole business of set asides, the whole business of what happens with reference to the philadelphia plan, all of that came because a guy named george schultz working for nixon put that together, and the republicans had a golden opportunity at that moment to really grab the leadership that lincoln had provided and by today willie brown may very well be saying positive things about the republicans. >> let's put that to sam. not only that, not only did they create basically affirmative action with the philadelphia plan, the screw the eye tish, italians, and their unions, they were up to trouble in some extent, going after the union leaders and they're locked out. unless you're nephew of a kid you're not getting a job there. moynihan gave nixon credit for ending the dual school system. how could they be going in that direction and at the same time playing the southern strategy with strom thurmond and those boys? >> that's why the great gary wills said richard nixon was the last liberal and there is a reference, willi
